Much Ado About Nothing July 26 – August 5, 2018
The Comedy of Terrible Errors July 28 – August 4, 2018
Thanks to You
Shakespeare Royal Oak offers me a time to distill many of my so-called higher passions into one experience: excellence in the arts, service to my home community, building education and career growth opportunities for the emerging generation.
Then there’s the joy of creating the magic of live outdoor theater. The unison laughter of a relaxed group of pleasant people on an evening in the park. The bonds that are formed in the doing of it. The sunset. The lights. The lost and found. The child discovering Shakespeare. The smiles and thank-yous. These joys bring me back to do it again and again.
And in every season there is an opportunity for me to grow, to find more in me. That’s the pay-off.
The many people who’ve joined me in this, from patrons to donors to artists to volunteers, are the doers of it. I’m sure you are one of them.
So my thanks to you!
Thank You for a Great Season!
